British indie-rock band, Athlete, released their fifth album, Black Swan, in 2009. The band’s sweeping, echoing guitar rhythms matched with haunting synth creates a sound that is best represented by their 2006 Ivor Novella Award winning song, “Wires” from the band’s 2005 album, Tourist. The indie-rock quartet has been friends since the age of 14. They joined KXT Afternoon Host, Joe Kozera, in studio for a few songs.
